£5.99 each

  • Hardy Perennial - sow indoors or on a seedbed (April-June); transplant later to flower for many seasons

Forsythia x intermedia ‘Lynwood Variety’ is a popular variety of deciduous shrub. It’s much loved for its profusion of vibrant yellow flowers which are produced in spring before any foliage appears, allowing the blooms to really stand out. It has a lovely, upright branching habit and so works equally well as an informal hedge or a stand alone shrub in a sunny shrub border. Forsythia x intermedia ‘Lynwood Variety’ is a low maintenance shrub which can be pruned to restrict its high, making it perfect for any sized garden.


Dig a hole large and deep enough to take the plant’s root ball.

Gently tap the plant out of its pot without disturbing the soil around the roots.

Position the plant in the hole so the plant’s crown is level with the surface and sits at the same depth as it was in the pot; make sure the roots are in direct contact with the soil.

Backfill with the excavated soil and firm in gently.

Water to settle the soil around the roots.



Watering: Water regularly in the first few weeks after planting but don’t overwater. The plants will send their roots down in search of moisture as they grow.

Feeding:  Give plants a boost if necessary with a handful of granular feed hoed into the soil in spring.

Pruning:  Prune these shrubs after flowering in mid to late spring.  Prune flowering stems back to a strong bud to keep the plants neat and to encourage next year’s flowers.

On established plants cut out old or congested stems from the centre of the shrub.
